Trump's approval rating fell from net-positive, meaning more people approve than disapprove, to net negative in almost every battleground state, according to a Morning Consult tracking poll.

Trump's approval also plummeted from the positives to the negatives in New Hampshire, Minnesota, Maine, New Mexico, Colorado, Nevada, Iowa, Arizona, Ohio, Virginia and North Carolina.

A new poll shows that for the first time in President Donald Trump's first term, more Americans believe the economy is worsening than the percentage of Americans who believe the economy is getting better. Bernie Sanders by 14 points, Massachusetts Sen.

Senator Elizabeth Warren similarly earned a wide showing of support against Trump, at 52 percent to 40 percent. Kamala Harris beating Trump 51 - 40 percent;South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg leading with 49 percent to Trump's 40 percent.

"As trade tensions with China dominate the headlines, confidence in the economy is slipping", said Quinnipiac pollster Mary Snow.

Though people believe things may be getting worse, 61% of voters in the poll believe the economy is excellent or good.
